Knavesborough revisited

Finally, back in Knavesborough. I have a few days´ rest in between exams, and I am determined to make the most of them. So I have picked up “The Halloween Murderer” where I got stuck more than a year ago.

I am busy helping Annabella Kickinbottom stick her nose in Rhapsody´s affairs. You do remember Annabella, don´t you? She worked as a (lousy) kitchen maid for Sir Bellini in “The Cosy Knave”, but she thinks she will be much better as a private eye. Well, we will see about that.


“Yoo-hoo! Rhapsody! Are you taking a nap or what?”

Rhapsody opened the door to the young woman who was practically jumping up and down on her doorstep.

“What… My, Annabella, for a second there I thought you were someone else.”

“Aren´t you going to let me in?” Annabella Kickinbottom sent her a broad smile, and despite the purple hair, a transformation which didn´t exactly suit the pale teenager, she recognized her old neighbour from home.

“Of course, sorry I´m not really with it this morning.” Rhapsody stepped aside to let the animated teenager in.

Annabella was all in black, an over-washed t-shirt, jeans with large holes on both knees and Doc Marten boots. It seemed as if someone had waved a wand to change the mousy kitchen maid into a brand-new creature overnight. Rhapsody was just not certain she was more comfortable around the new version.

“Come in and have a cup of tea, Annabella. What brings you here?”

“But I´m not here to drink tea, Rhapsy. I´m here to help you out.”

    Knavesborough – our favorite little town. Sounds like Rhapsody is really in for a difficult time. 🙂

    Well, the weekend has gone, and I haven´t written very much. But I did make some progress, and my next post will tell you how I spent my time. I think Tracy will be pleased 😉
